my name is michael moore and i am a master's student at georgetown university's program in
communication, culture & technology.

in my academic life, i study new media from an interdisciplinary stance. in particular, much of my research looks at video games as a cultural practice. recently i have looked at the ways in which digital production encourages game players to develop new methods of reading and writing -- new literacies -- that often clash with conventional print literacy. building on this research, i am interested in the ways that games and play can transform academic production. you can find a few of my own experiments with non-standard academic work here.

the rest of this site features much of my academic work from georgetown along with the notes and brainstorming that made it possible. feel free to look around. the menu on your right should help you navigate.
